New Independence Day parade planned for Rolesville

Rolesville 4th of JulyThe Rolesville Fireworks 500 Club plans to host the Town of Rolesville’s first Independence Day parade on July 4.

The club is seeking marching units, veterans’ service organizations, law enforcement agencies, fire departments and their color guards, civic organizations, high school bands and ROTC units and historical military equipment to participate in the parade.

The theme of the Independence Day parade is “A Nation Forever Grateful.” Organizers say the parade is an opportunity for the citizens of the Town of Rolesville and surrounding cities to honor not only veterans of the Armed Services but police officers, sheriff’s deputies, firefighters and emergency medical personnel.

The parade will begin at 5 p.m. at Grand Rock and Rogers roads.  It will travel Rogers Road and cross U.S. 401 onto Redford Place Drive.

After the parade, organizers will present local bands, food trucks and other festivities the entire family can enjoy, plus fireworks at the Rolesville ball fields. There is no cost to watch the fireworks show; however, the Rolesville Fireworks 500 Club will be accepting donations at the entry gates.
